An official NASA photograph has cropped up many questions after what seems to be a woman-like figure was captured by Spirit, NASA's Mars explorer robot.

While the American agency was not drawn into the speculation, the photograph is remarkably similar of a woman with her arm stretched.

While some sections have played it down to rock and shadow optical illusion, despite everything it has created a media buzz, especially across the web.

Major news channels have hired experts to describe the chances of the figure being an alien or some sort of living currently residing in Mars.

"I'd say the chances of it being a living orgasm are far-fetched, however human knowledge about space is extremly limited, so you never know whats out there" one expert said.

Spirit, sent to Mars to capture images from the surface of the planet, is one half of a $820m mission, along with its twin explorer, Opportunity.

It landed on Mars in January 2004 for a three month mission to search Gusev Crater, a rock strewn stretch of soil that scientists believe could be the bed of an ancient lake. If Mars once had surface water, it had the potential to support life.
